This ride has a mixture of roads, from the more fluent roads of the A9 and the A835 to the smaller single track roads (with passing places) of the A836 and A838, the landscapes are spectacular and there is culture in the form of John O Groat’s and, more importantly, the Highland hospitality.

Suggested Place to Stay

Melvich Hotel (Currently being refurbished and due to open shortly)
KW14 7YJ

Tel. 01641 531206


The Melvich Hotel is situated on Scotland's northern Seaboard. A comfortable but informal Country Hotel with a Cliff Top position overlooking Melvich Bay to the Island of Hoy and the Orkney mainland beyond. The lounge bar with its peat fire has wonderful views over the bay to Orkney. There is also a games room with a Pool Table adjacent to the Public Bar where you can experience true Highland Spirits!! The large garden allows guests to take in the breathtaking sight and sound of the surf form the bay. An ideal stopping point after visiting John O’Groats but before the delights of Tongue and beyond.
